Request for Notice

Official Procedure Last Change December 1, 2019

Request for Notice (limited users)

How to file: 

Location of event: Bankruptcy > Limited Users > Request for Notice


This procedure is for limited users only. See separate procedure if you are an attorney filer.

General Information

  • A Request for Notice does not entitle the filer to receive notices that they are not otherwise entitled to receive.
  • When an attorney files a Request for Notice electronically, they are not added to the case as a party. Therefore, they will not receive notices of electronic filing on that case unless they file some other pleading. However, if the attorney adds themselves to the creditors mailing list, they will receive by mail copies of notices that are sent out to all creditors.

Filing requirements

  • The Request for Notice must be signed by the filing party.
  • No order is required to be uploaded.
